In fairness, two of those years were GOP waves [which Florida was LEFT of the nation on!], three of those years had the GOP Pres have certain ties to the state that gave them an advantage inherently.

Truthfully the only one to be ashamed of is 2006, that was a Dem Wave and the vote was more than +3 R...pretty sure Crist won that won bigly.

And I guess 2018 was a disappointment...but it was 30,000 votes from breaking the +3R ceiling (in contrast, Nelson ran behind by double digits compared to the Senate vote)

It's pathetic that Democrats won TWO Governor elections in WYOMING during that time.

The Florida Democratic Party is a disgrace, which was exemplified by Bill Nelson losing in a D+8.6 year.

It wasn't D+8.6 at the gubernatorial level though, it was D+2.1...and anything less than D+3 just means the GOP holds on per usual.

What Iím still puzzled by is why Gillum polled so well (and so much better than Nelson).

Gillum actually ran a campaign, Nelson didn't.

Unfortunately, DeSantis was a good campaigner too. Adam Putnam would've lost, thanks to not being Trumpy-enough.

Oh, and Gwen Graham probably would've figured out how to do worse than 0.4 given how lackluster her primary campaign was.
